Examples of how to dress your body type



Do you have a hard time figuring out your style or what would go well with your shape? No worries, it's very easy. As I'm sure you've heard it said many times "Dress for your body type or silhouette". Well, what does all that mean? Simply put, just find the one part of your body that you're proud of/love and accentuate it. These photos give us some great examples of that. For instance, Kim Kardashian - accentuates her slim waist with a nice wide belt... whereas, Paula on the other hand, is in this great purple drape dress...which covers a multitude of sins.

Once you know your body silhouette or what your best assets are, be a savvy shopper and only buy items that will accentuate it. If you're one of those who feel that you don't have a shape, the quickest way to accomplish a fashionable, polished shapely look is with a belt. For instance, the first photo of Kim... the asymmetry of the dress creates vertical lines combined with the black belt make it much more flattering. Now, try imagining that dress without that nice wide belt. It wouldn't have accentuated her best asset - which is her thin waistline. The belt not only sassed up the dress but it also gives it that va-va-voom effect. 

The other look I like is Paula's drape dress. It is a great way to cover any jiggly bits & pieces that you might not be too pleased with. Keeping these tips in mind while shopping, you'll find that you too can look fabulous no matter what shape you are. Go out there, try it! Why don't you post a comment and let me know if you found these tips helpful.
